But training costs time and money—and until you truly identify the problem, how can you know if throwing more training at it will make a difference?
Yet over time, too many businesses get into a habit of addressing every issue with the same prescribed solutions. Often, these “habits” can turn into departmental silos, where protecting territories, budgets and “the way we do things” becomes more important than actually finding the best solution for the problem at hand.
